About Mandarina Duck
Mandarina Duck is an Italian fashion brand, most commonly associated with designer luggage and travel accessories but it has also released sunglasses, fragrances, watches, perfumes and, in 2007, a mobile phone. In July 2011, E-Land, a large Korean retailer, purchased the debt-ridden Mandarina Duck.
The company name and logo come from the Mandarin duck, a breed that lives on the banks of the Ussuri River on the border of Russia and China. They opened a flagship outlet in Malaysia since 2007.
Its headquarters are in Bologna, Italy, and also has branches in Paris, Barcelona, Düsseldorf, Berlin, Vienna, and London also with outlets such as Banbridge Outlet in Northern Ireland. It was founded in 1977 by Paolo Trento and Pietro Mannato, and its first collection was called Utility.
